Walt Disney Studios is really, really interested in the broadcast rights to George Lucas' The Clone Wars animated series, which is set to premiere at some point in 2008. They will have company, however, as both Fox and HBO have expressed a serious interest in the series, as well.
The show will be, as Lucas has previously stated, more adventurous than the last couple of Star Wars films, and will harken back to the original, in terms of style and tone, though the series will be animated. Also, Lucas maintains that he will produce at least 100 episodes of The Clone Wars before it is all over.
We don't care who gets the rights. We just really want to see it.
